servers, software or any material provided by its agents.
A deposit of 50% is required with any project before any design work will be carried out.
Once a website has been designed and completed the final balance of payment is then due in accordance with our payment
terms. There are no exceptions to this, i.e If the client decides they no longer want the site, as they have commissioned the
work and paid a deposit they are still obliged to pay for the work that has been done. Non payment will result in legal action
being taken if necessary.
Database, Application and E-Commerce Development
Bizonline cannot take responsibility for any losses incurred by the use of any software created for the client. Whilst every care
has been taken to ensure products are problem free and accurate, the ultimate responsibility lies with the client in ensuring that
all software is functioning correctly before use.
Any scripts, cgi applications or software (unless specifically agreed) written by Bizonline remain the copyright of Bizonline and
may only be commercially reproduced or resold with the permission of Bizonline.
Where applications or sites are developed on servers not recommended by Bizonline, the client is expected to provide or
seek any information,additional software,support or co-operation pertaining to the server required in order for the application
to be correctly developed. Where large applications are to be developed, it is the clients responsibility to provide a suitable
testing environment which is identical to the final production environment.
The client is expected to test fully any application or programming relating to a site developed by Bizonline before being made
generally available for use. Where “bugs”, errors or other issues are found after the site is live, Bizonline will endeavor (but is
not obliged to) to correct these issues to meet the standards of function outlined in the brief.

A deposit is required from any new client before any work is carried out. It is the Bizonline policy that any outstanding accounts
for work carried out by Bizonline or its affiliates are required to be paid in full, no later than 30 days from the date of the invoice
unless by prior arrangement with Bizonline.
Once a deposit is paid and work completed you are obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via
email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due.
If accounts are not settled or Bizonline have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the related website may be
denied and web pages removed, we will then pass such cases to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment, non payment can
result in county court judgements (ccj’s) being added to the clients credit rating.
Following consistent non payment of an invoice our Solicitors will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter
further and if need be to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary court summons.
